Problem connecting bluetooth
« on: November 09, 2012, 02:19:13 AM »
I can't connect Bluetooth. To my galaxy s3 phone.
Search finds phone and gives a passkey but I can't see where or how I can enter it on either device?

Make your phone discoverable. While in blue tooth settings on Nexus hit the search for devices at the top. When your phone appears in the list you should be able to go from there. Sometimes there is no password or a generic 0000 or 1234 works.

What gives you a passkey? Is your device being recognized? Is it now saved in blue tooth devices on the Nexus? What happens when you tap it and try and connect?

Are you trying to hook your Tablet up to your phone or your phone to tablet? Big difference.
I was assuming phone to tablet.

My bluetooth adapter is installed on my Win 7 PC. Device manager finds it and says it working. I goto Nexus 7 and turn ON bluetooth....my PC appears in window. I tell it to pair and it gives me a 6 digit pin...but where do I input this. Nexus is waiting -trying to pair, but nothing happens on PC... and 'computer screen' shows all my drives but not the Nexus. In control panel- under devices- it shows a working adapter.
